Buenos Aires Cafe is one of Austin’s few Argentine restaurants, and has held its own on the East Side for a while now. The empanadas are crusty (in the best way)—you should go for the chicken or vegetable options. If you’re here for lunch, the steak sandwich is one of the best we’ve had. And if you’re here for dinner, you’re also going to want to order a steak. And as if we needed another East Side secret to try to keep, there’s a speakeasy bar under the restaurant called Milonga Room, with vintage ’20s decor and excellent cocktails.
